    Marigold and Cora

    I have been chickenless for quite a few years now. I went to visit my cousin this past week and saw the state he was keeping his birds in. He had two chicks in a guinea pig cage with a tarp halfway over it and a soaking wet towel in there. It has been raining for days straight! One of the chicks...

    They're gone... :(

    My birds free ranged during the day and were put up at night. That's how it's always been. They got to the point where so flighty that I couldn't catch them. I usually easily herded them in to their pen and house. I went out one morning and my favorite Cochin hen was gone (avatar pic). I freaked...

    13 week old RIR cockerel

    Seamus needs to go to a new home. He's just now 13 weeks old and does not crow yet. I've not had any problems with him at all. He's not aggressive toward me, other people, or the other ducks and chickens. He is from a feed store... so maybe a production red? I've been told many different things...

    Last pictures of my Muscovy 12-9-09

    I found these pictures the other day. I had forgotten that I took them. I miss my Ducky! I'm pretty sure that this is a female but it went though most of its life being called Clyde. Duck disappeared in early January. I assumed that a coyote, fox, or the like got it just like it's sibling months...

    Finally laying!

    My two bantam Cochins were steadily giving me about two eggs each every week (sometimes more, sometimes less). I heard that that was kind of slow but that's how it's been for as long as I can remember. Well, for about three weeks they both stopped laying. I was hopping one or both would go...

    My First Chicken

    I just wanted to introduce my first chicken ever and tell a little about his short life. I moved from town into the country in 2007. The house I moved in to used to have hundreds of chickens, goats, ducks, etc. When the lady moved out, I guess she didn't catch all of the birds. I discovered a...
